This year started off very tough, my dad has been battling cancer and is doing great! But, my Uncle lost his battle, he will be missed so much. My Aunt suddenly passed and my Grandfather passed on Easter Sunday. To much sadness. Life is so short and you never know when it is your time. Take time and be mindful of what is going on in the moment. Spend time with the people you love and share the good times.

My dad is going in for bone marrow transplant this week and will be in isolation for about 3 weeks, but we are lucky that his cancer is very managable and it was detected early. I am running for school board and putting time in to help the district I live in and believe in. I am glad that both my parents and family are proud and standing with me. I wouldn’t want to do anything to damage my family.

This posts covered a lot in very short, but I wanted to get this out there. So I will leave the day with this picture of me and my dad behind a yard sign for my election. Please keep him in your prayers for a quick recovery.
